December 27, 1922 ~ March 7, 2014
It’s with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Joyce (Jo) Conner on March 7, 2014 at Woodgrove Manor, Nanaimo, B.C.
Jo was born December 27th, 1922 in Toronto, Ontario and spent her formative years there. It was here she met and married her husband, Albert (Al) Clifford Conner, and raised their daughter Shelia (Shelly) before moving to various locations in Canada and Europe finally settling in Comox, B.C. in 1964.
Jo was involved in numerous organizations, two of which being Past President of #160 Comox Legion Ladies Auxiliary, and a member of The Order of the Eastern Star. She held many chairs within both organizations locally in the Comox Valley, as well as provincially.
Jo is predeceased by her husband Al who passed in November 2007 and parents Bill & Janet Beck, her four brothers; Lloyd, Cec, Pogue and Elgin Beck. She is survived by her daughter Shelly (Lorne) Hornby, grandsons Barry (Joelle) and Lance (Miriam), great granddaughters Alexandra, Ava, Merissa and Caitlin and her beloved niece Cece (Jim) Sweet and family.
Family meant everything to Jo and we hold dear the many memories we shared together. The family would like to thank the caring staff at Woodgrove Manor who made Jo’s time there pleasant and comforting.
At Jo’s request, there will be no service.
“Those we love don’t go away,
They walk beside us every day.
Unseen, unheard but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.”
